Dodge Data & Analytics Launches Suite of Microsites for Construction Professionals

HAMILTON, N.J., Sept. 13, 2021 — Dodge Data & Analytics and The Blue Book today announced plans to publish a suite of four microsites, each with a unique editorial focus designed to serve different sectors of the construction industry.

COLUMN, the first of the four microsites that launched today, is a new content outlet that celebrates the art and science of smarter building. COLUMN is an editorial destination covering the issues that matter most to building industry professionals, including technology, design, sustainability, business and finance, health, safety, and wellness.

The microsites will serve as a centralized editorial space for the construction industry’s most important and timely resources such as research reports, webinars, whitepapers, podcasts, executive Q&As, analysis on current events, legislation, and more. Additional microsites will be announced in the coming weeks.

“COLUMN’s content is built on the world-class data, analytics, and industry insights of Dodge Data & Analytics and The Blue Book,” said Dave Colford, Chief Revenue Officer. “With these microsites, we hope to serve a diverse audience of architects, contractors, developers, engineers, and other professionals who are united in the desire for a more efficient, economical, healthy, sustainable, and just way of building.”

COLUMN’s first sponsor, Big Ass Fans, is an American company that manufactures fans and comfort solutions for industrial, agricultural, commercial, and residential use.

The second sponsor, Nucor Corporation, is a manufacturer of steel and steel products, with operating facilities in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Their Construction Solutions team is a nationwide team that is a proactive resource, leveraging Nucor’s unique position in the supply chain and vast experience to assist teams at every stage of the design and construction process.

COLUMN’s third initial sponsor, Andersen Windows, is an international window and door manufacturing enterprise based in Bayport, MN.
